For the month of February, Project 615 is honored to be paying tribute to Black History Month in Nashville. We pay tribute to some of Nashville’s thriving African-American communities, musicians and athletes.

Jimi & The King Kasuals. In 1962 after being discharged from Fort Campbell near Clarksville, TN, James Marshall Hendrix, also known as Jimi Hendrix became a large part of the Jefferson Street music scene in Nashville. It was the fall of 1962, and Hendrix was wrapping up a stint jumping out of airplanes with the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell. Jimi formed a band called “The King Kasuals” where they were playing clubs in Clarksville but got invited down to audition in Nashville. Hendrix was already an over-the-top, musically eccentric showman given to playing guitar with his teeth—and/or whatever other extremity might get the audience riled. “The King Kasuals” were regular performers at the North Nashville club district, Printer’s Alley clubs, as well as often serving as the house band for the local television program, Night Train. Jimi and the band eventually moved to Nashville’s Jefferson Street, which was the traditional heart of the city’s black community and home to a thriving rhythm and blues music scene.
